'The Little Prince' and 'The Catcher In The Rye' among world's most translated books

Who among book lovers hasn’t been inspired by the wise whimsy of The Little Prince, or had Pinocchio’s beak-growing tale remind you not to lie?

Unless you spoke French or Italian, these classics wouldn’t have reached you if it weren’t for their widespread translations into hundreds of different languages: that would be 253 and 240 languages, respectively.

To celebrate World Book Day (March 5), the folks at 7 Brands, Inc. created an infographic of the most translated books across the globe, including The Catcher In The Rye and Things Fall Apart. Check out part of the graphic below, and head to 7 Brands for the rest.
